Why do you think this is lying and not simply bureaucratic incompetence? I think if they were lying they wouldn't have published this number today.

Misrepresented = lie in my world--the goal has always been to minimize it, until they couldn't with WHO on the ground.

Whoops!!

List your source for this "Breaking" news. All I see is a posting on Reddit with BNO News as the Source. They, BNO, do not list any other source.

BNN stated as source this: http://wjw.hubei.gov.cn/fbjd/dtyw/202002/t20200213_2025581.shtml

What it says is that from now on, they will also add "clinically diagnosed" patients to the total. In other words, until now, they were only counting people with lab results (just like everybody else). Now they will count using superficial symptoms, so that people can get medical help even without tests.

Out of the 14,840, there were 13,332 "clinically diagnosed" people. Based on symptoms, they may have the coronavirus, or flu or something else. It's not lab confirmed.
